Morrah, Lewis, Lutui among roster cuts

The Seattle Seahawks announced that the team has released 12 players this afternoon.

Tight end Cameron Morrah and cornerback Roy Lewis were among the surprises as Seattle attempts to get down to 75 players. Both were regular contributors in 2011. However, both players also were dealing with injury issues.

Lewis had a knee injury that required surgery, leaving his availability for the season opener in question. And Morrah had a chronic toe injury that had forced him to miss several practices during training camp.

Offensive linemen Alex Barron and Deuce Lutui also was a surprise cuts. Barron, a former first round draft pick, had looked good at times during camp, and likely will get snapped up by a tackle-needy team like the New York Jets.

Lutui was expected to compete for a job at right guard. But with the surprise development of seventh round draft choice J.R. Sweezy, Lutui became expendable.

Along with Morrah and Lewis, other players who were waived/injured include former seventh round draft choices linebacker Jameson Konz (shoulder) and defensive lineman Pep Levingston (knee).

Others that were released include receiver Phil Bates, tackle Edawn Coughman, cornerback Donny Lisowski, cornerback Ron Parker, running back Tyrell Sutton and receiver Terrell Owens.

Seattle still has 77 players on the roster, so two more players will need to be cut by Monday afternoon to get down to the required 75 players.

    wow didn’t se lutui not making it past 75

  2. Bummer that Lewis got hurt as he has been solid in the Nickel package. No one is crying about TO being gone that’s for sure. Morrah was pretty terrible last year, so good riddance. Cutting Lutui shows how solid Sweezey is, what a story!

  3. montanamike2 says:

    Yeah it was almost as if TO was trying to get cut with all those perfectly thrown balls bouncing off his hands.

  4. Wtf, dude morrah, Lewis and litui wow. T.O. peace, no love lost there

  5. Eric… does that leave us with 3 more cuts?

  6. Ooops.. you already answered ‘two’….

  7. I think we have our very own Chris Dielman in the Sweezster (a crappy college DT who will kick butt as a G in the NFL). It certainly makes the guard situation interesting next year when Carp is back at full strength.

    Seriously, how in the heck are Mr. Happy and the Duke Boy that much smarter than almost anyone else? Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there’s some luck in getting a guy to fall to you in the 7th round (if you knew they’d be that good, you take them earlier) but what’s up with all of these crazy later picks like Sherman, Chancellor, Sweezy, etc. being really good players? I know that all of them haven’t been great, but NOBODY hits a HR on EVERY pick. They have an abnormal track record of getting studs in their 3 drafts (1 draft you can get lucky, but 3 drafts is a pattern). And now, we have 2 of the best 3 QBs in our division in my opinion (I was drinking our kool-aid, but can’t deny what I still think of Sam Bradford with our surrounding talent). It’s fun to be a Seahawks fan these days, that’s for sure.

  8. montanamike2 says:

    I’ve noticed a lot of teams around the league with holes in their o-line. I’m burnt out from watching football like a madman, i like that the teams we beat are beating the crap out of division rivals.

  9. montanamike2 says:

    our division rivals.

  10. Seahawks2620 says:

    Jackson just got traded to the bills.

  11. montanamike2 says:

    That’s exactly what i wanted.

  12. With the defense being set in more ways than one I feel that roster cuts on the offensive side of the ball will gain the most scrutiny.

    The QB and OL have typically been the same in the last few years in that we carry 3 QBs and at least 9 OL. It would be unwise to give up a roster position for either spot.

    Wide Reciever is the spot that gains the most attention but to be honest, it is the position that is least important in our “run first west coast offense”. Our offensive gameplay is predicated around the success of our run game. As our run game goes, so does our offense. Last year we kept 6 WR. We can easily afford to give up a spot or a more important component to our offense like RB.

    1. Rice 2. Baldwin 3. Edwards 4. Butler 5. Tate

    RB – is the most important cog to our offense and we cannot afford to have it stall. We kept 4 last year…here’s why we should keep 5. Marshawn turned it up towards the end of the year. Sure the offensive line gelling and marshawn learning the system helped, but it was not a coincidence that pro bowl fullback Michael Robinson was injured during the first part of the season. Marshawn is a better running back with a lead block in front of him.

    The extra roster spot provided with 5 wideouts would allow us add depth to our FB spot. Enter Vai Tua. If you go back to your DVR in the last two games you will see a very impressive blocker. He sees the hole well and makes very quick adjustments when the blocks break down. He throws a solid pop on linebackers and holds his own on the linemen. Oh and he can run AND catch, but you’ll have to go back to last years pre season to see that.

    TE – We only kept 3 last year but we may need 4 …Tight ened provides versatility to our scheme, and unfortunately our two primary starters have had injury concerns. At this point McCoy has to be a lock with his strength in blocking but we also have some pass catching TE that can provide depth to Kellen. With Morrah gone can McGrath step into a pass catching role…seems to be the only option left.

  13. And now we T jack is traded…wow..

  14. Seahawks2620 says:

    Maybe they traded us Mario Williams for him! A man can dream.

  15. Please don’t joke about this. You had better be serious!

    Please excuse me – I’m going to go eat some crow b/c I have said that nobody would ever trade for him – now I know why the Bills have been worthless for over a decade… they trade something/anything, no matter what, and guys like Bo and Mr. Happy turn those terrible picks into Chris Dielman Jr!

    How in the world do you trade a worthless player for something? And why are teams dumb enough to trade something/anything for players that suck? My goodness, get a kid with potential to not suck instead of one that still sucks but everyone likes to say he doesn’t suck as bad as we thought he’d suck. lmao

    This is a happy day in my life! I honestly don’t think I have ever hated a Seahawk more than I hated (strong word, I know) Jackson. He’s a good guy, I know that, so I don’t “hate” him that way, but I want to win a Super Bowl!!!

    I love Flynn! I love Wilson! Even though I think Portis is a tool (derrr), I don’t care.

    This reminds me of a Motley Crue song when I was in high school… it was something about “don’t go away mad” and was more about “just go away.” The T-Jack “era” is coming to an end! I’m so happy!!!

  16. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Why did they cut Bate’s?

  17. Seahawks2620 says:

    GeorgiaHawk- probably attempting to sneak him onto the practice squad.

  18. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Would they dare do the impossible and trade Flynn sometime soon. I hope not but for the right price you never know.

    BobbyK- with Jackson perhaps gone now, who are you going to pick on? Let me guess Portis.Lol.

  19. grizindabox24 says:

    Georgia, because they must like Martin/Kearse/Tuinui/Durham/Lockette more?

  20. GeorgiaHawk says:

    They can’t start the practice squad till after the final cuts can they?

  21. Georgia – don’t criticize today! Rejoice! Be happy! This is one of the greatest days in the history of this franchise! T-Junk is gone!!! I am happy!!! Actually, happy is really nothing to how I really feel. I’m happy times infinity!!! This is one of the best day of my life with respect to being a Seahawks fan! This might even rank ahead of when we beat the Raiders in the play-offs in the mid-80s! That’s HIGH!!! No more of me having to worry about… well, ummm, …

    With Wilson and Flynn… I have ***NO*** worries about this season… I know we’ll have young guys (with brains/talent) making mistakes, but it’s better than the alternative…

    Seriously, I feel as if a gigantic weight has been lifted from me and now I don’t have to worry about horrible (or not as bad as we thought… lol) QB play from my favorite team…

    Duke – if he’s really gone, I can officially plan my Seahawks game this fall (since I boycotted ever attending a Seahawks game when T-Jack was the QB). I’ll talk to my wife and get back to you!

    Anyone else, who is a regular poster on this blog, have any games they are going to? I’d like to meet some of you!

  22. montanamike2 says:

    I think i have enough disdain for Tebow so i’ll let anybody hate on him too.

  23. grizindabox24 says:

    practice squad is put together 24 hours after final cuts…and no way they move Flynn

  24. Georgia – I don’t want to pick on anyone. I do think Portis is a moron (multiple issues w/his history) but I don’t care (he’s 3rd string, so who cares). This is a great day!!!

  25. GeorgiaHawk says:

    grizindabox24- So what are you trying to say, Bates didn’t master his position?

  26. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Just kidding Bobby, I’m just as happy as you today.

  27. why in the world would they get rid of Flynn? TJ is traded. Hopefully, Pete can have one of his positive talks w/Flynn, and get him right for the season if, as we all assume, he’s the back-up and not the starter.

    Still can’t quite believe that RW has seized the starting QB role coming out of the 3rd round.

  28. Greatest Moments of My Life w/respect to being a Seahawks fan…

    1. When I walked into Ford Field and saw the “Seahawks” painted into the Super Bowl end zone. That was a great feeling. I almost cried.

    2. Seahawks beating Dolphins in play-offs a long, long time ago.

    3. Today – T-Jack gone!!! Yes. I hate him so bad that I liked it better than the Carolina game!!! In part, probably, due to the game being over relatively early.

  29. grizindabox24 says:

    Georgia, nope, just saying he must not have impressed the staff

  30. montanamike2 says:

    1 more cut to go…..

  31. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I would like to go to at least one game this year, But I always fly into Portland and drive up.
    It would be cool to meet up with some of you in Portland at perhaps Dukes favorite Pub.
    Drinks on Dukeshire of course.

  32. grizindabox24 says:

    Wonder if there might be one more deal the Hawks are trying to make

  33. I realize this may be blastphamy around here, but I love Flynn and Wilson equally! It’s really too bad that Flynn was forced to throw to Eldorado so much last week. This might still be a competition if it wasn’t for that. Oh well, as long as we have a real QB (AND WE HAVE TWO!!!), I’m okay with that!!! Flynn and Wilson are inifinity times better than Jackson (who is only slightly better than S. Wynn – the worst QB I have ever seen, minus C. Hanie… lol). Wonderful Day!!!

  34. montanamike2 says:

    If there was an actual meeting for a game i might even fly out.

  35. boucherm says:

    Must mean Flynn’s elbow isn’t serious.

  36. Do not forget we will undoubtedly pick some player off the waivers before this all shakes out.

  37. Georgia – What game are you thinking?

    I have talked w/my wife and have said that IF the Seahawks (unless T-Jack were the QB) ever host an NFC Championship Game… that I’d like to go to that instead of the Super Bowl (wherever it was played).

  38. ChrisHolmes says:

    Echoing BobbyK’s thoughts. Happy. TJunk gone. T.O. gone. Wilson our future and playing now. Awesome.

  39. BobbyK – I will be at GB,Minn,Ari, STL – had to sell the other half of the tickets – 2 kids in college is killing me!

  40. GeorgiaHawk says:

    BTW- I think I saw a klm008 sighting on the game chat. Need the stat man back.

  41. grizindabox24 says:

    cerjam, I think it is a very remote chance the Hawks bring in someone from the first round of cuts, but they will probably kick the tires on some from the final cutdown at the end of the week

  42. raymaines says:

    I don’t know BobbyK from Adam and I have no business saying anything, but I can just see the guy sitting in the middle of a pile of empty beer cans, slobbering all over himself, typing happy stuff on ten different blogs. This will last until MF gets traded and RW gets hurt and JP is the starting QB and the new face of the franchise.

  43. ChrisHolmes – I have read your comments about the QB position for months and I think me and you share the same brain when it comes to that!

  44. Not sure if anyone will get picked up this year – we are WAY deeper than in past years – but as we have said MANY times on this Blog – ya never know what Pete is gonna do!

  45. Dukeshire says:

    This is a big day for Bobby: Jackson gone.

    I’m sorry to see Lewis gone. Not that he was a cornerstone player, but a player who worked his ass off to make a roster season after season, even though others were always brought in to replace him. Good luck, Roy.

    Was it reported it was an elbow with Flynn?

  46. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I don’t know yet BobbyK, I’m think early to mid December.

  47. grizindabox24 says:

    NFC Championship vs Carolina was a blast, most fun at a game ever

  48. boucherm says:

    They probably have a significant watch list of players that they think could help us out that may not make their teams’ cut from 75 to 53.

    It would be really cool to know who some of those guys are, particularly the ones that make their current teams.

  49. Dukeshire says:

    Georgia – Fly into Portland an we’ll take the train up. Goes right to the stadium. Let’s do it!

  50. GeorgiaHawk says:

    BobbyK, if you don’t pass out first blog us a song with T.O. and Jackson in it tonight.

  51. montanamike2 says:

    This year a lot of OUR cast offs will be scooped up by other teams.

  52. raymaines says:

    What I really came to the blog to say:

    I think Ricardo Lockette will soon be sharing an apartment with Jordan Kent somewhere in Georgetown and go on forever telling each other and whoever else will listen to them that they could have been great if only ………

    As fans we sometimes get attached to promising young guys that don’t pan out. Right now it kind of looks like Lockette The Rocket is the latest one.

  53. tchristensen says:

    I’m with BobbyK on T-Jack. Did anyone really believe he was ever in the quarterback competition?

  54. Soggybuc says:

    Bobby, Just remember to lock the basement door behind you when go to dance around in you underwear while drinking/pouring Champagne all over yourself. your children don’t need see that! =)

  55. boucherm says:

    I read elbow on Flynn, tendonitis like symptoms.

    This was on Profootballtalk, seems to clarify the cuts. TO, Barron and Lutui were flat cut, the others were not. Makes me feel way better about Roy Lewis, who I like a lot, as well, and Cam Morrah.

    “The Seahawks also waived the following players with the “injured” designation: linebacker Jameson Konz, defensive tackle Lazarius Levingston, cornerback Roy Lewis, and tight end Cameron Morrah. If unclaimed, each man will revert to the team’s injured reserve list.”

  56. GeorgiaHawk says:

    That sounds great Dukeshire! I have to go check the schedule.

    Hey if we can get a few more to do this we could have a blast!

    Would the train bring us back the same day?

  57. Dukeshire says:

    Thanks. Hadn’t read that.

  58. boucherm says:

    Wait, sorry. Konz, Levingston, Lewis and Morrah are the only guys that applies to, the others are just gone.

  59. Dukeshire says:

    Georgia – Absolutely. The train home leaves at 5:30, a I recall. It would be so fun.

  60. grizindabox24 says:

    boucherm, they are all no longer employed by the Hawks.

  61. Soggybuc says:

    I think the injured status just allows them a bit more to time to decide who to put on the final IR list while complying with the 75 rule by 1 p.m. tomorrow.
    I honestly thought Deuce would make it. he’s played well and having J.R. listed as depth would let them get him more work.
    Lewis has to be a pure product of his injury being very real as he has value on the 53.

  62. Dukeshire says:

    Looks like an undisclosed pick for Jackson (sorry if this was previously noted. I’ve been in and out today…).

  63. grizindabox24 says:

    Konz, Levingston, Lewis, and Morrah are also gone.

  64. raymaines says:

    Danny O’Neil says “The deal would also signify something else for Seattle: Flynn’s elbow injury — which kept him from playing Friday in Kansas City — must not be considered serious. There’s no way the Seahawks would trade Jackson if there was significant uncertainty about Flynn’s availability this season.”

    I hope Danny’s right.

    I pretty much had myself talked into the idea that MF would be traded. Shows what I know.

    I’m dying to know what Seattle got for TJack. In my Dare To Dream scenario it would be whatever they gave S.D. for Charlie Whitehurst. A third round pick I think.

  65. LaConfora was reporting they were asking for a 5th

  66. Watching SF/Den – the 3rd 4th stringers from Denver are really not good – and SF can only manage field goals – they are not deep either at least in the Line positions

  67. T-Jack was brought in as a band-aid to this season when they had planned all along to bring in their eventual starting QB.Due to NFL lock out it was easy to see why T.Jack was chosen since he knew this offense from being w/ OC in Minnesota.
    Initially, it was thought that the starter would be Flynn for obvious reasons like being in league for four years behind a legend and his last game was epic. Little did anyone realize how epic Wilson is.
    Last I heard both Seattle and Buffalo deny report, though it should be true unless it’s Flynn to Buffalo. If it’s T.J. to Buffalo, will Flynn restructure his contract to better fit being back up or is Flynns contract based on performance as a starter making his salary moot?

  68. princeaden says:

    Georgia and Duke, When you guys settle on a game let me know. I would love to meet up with you guys somewhere near the Stadium for a beverage and take in the game ( if that’s cool with you two).

  69. Dukeshire says:

    princeaden – Absolutely. I know I’ll be at the Dallas game, so that’s always an option. But I would love to get a group together.

  70. Happy that our team will get some trade value in exchange for Jackson, and happy that Tjack got his trade to a team where he can compete to start. He’s too good to sit on a bench all season.

  71. That said, I don’t really envy any player who ends up in Buffalo. Some very good players there, good coach, but the worst management in the league.

  72. princeaden says:

    Sounds groovy Duke. I shall begin robbing my Kids Piggy banks immediately. lol

  73. Still not official and I am seeing that Both teams have denied the trade – is that true?

  74. BobbyK will be on an emotional yo-yo until this trade is comfirmed or denied.

  75. freedom_X says:

    Barron might end up with the Cardinals, since they really need a tackle.

    In the game against Denver, I knew that the coaching staff was really ticked off at Lutui for his personal fouls. They immediately yanked him from the game. Last thing Seattle needs is another rash of undisiciplined penalties (remember last year?)

    Jeron Johnson may have pushed Lewis out. Anyway, it’s a sign of improved depth if Seattle is releasing players that seem to be decent, at this stage. I also think that fewer draft picks will make the team this year, because the depth is better. More picks will get cut.

  76. RDPoulsbo says:

    Actually none of them surpises me. TO who? Lutui lost out because there’s a lot of guys with better versatility and upside. Besides Moffitt and McQ, you have Omalye, Sweezy, and JP all who can play guard if called upon. With 9 slots for o-line, there’s no use for a guy who has already reached his peak and can’t play other spots. Morrah is constantly injured. They weren’t going to have an entire position filled with guys who have injury questions. Secondary is getting filled up. We’ve seen the most we can get from Lewis.

    I figured BobbyK would be popping the champagne. Word was they were looking for a 5th/6th conditional and just needed to work out the contract a couple days ago. A lot better than I would have expected.

  77. raymaines says:

    It’s so cool Seattle could turn free agents into draft picks. First Ruud, and now (we think) T-Jack. You didn’t think a team could buy draft picks did ya?

    This past April they picked up Korey Toomer in the 5th round and JR Sweezy and Greg Scruggs in the 7th round. I’d take any two of those guys for Ruud and T-Jack. Go SeaHawks.

  78. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Dukeshire- princeaden- I have to do a little selling on this with my girlfriend,( because of my 50th birthday in New Orleans on fat Tuesday with the body painted women). I think they were women anyways.

  79. RDPoulsbo says:

    I think they probably need to get the new contract negotiation settled before they can make it official.

  80. Just got my tix, and it would be a blast to meet you guys for a round before the Dallas game.

  81. RDPoulsbo says:

    Oh and most hated Seahawk in history BobbyK? That’s a bit over the top. Duckett is easily mine, followed by Daryl Turner and and Julius Jones. Tom Flores is also on that list if you want to count coaches.

    T-Jack was never one of my favorites, but I could probably find 10 more guys before I get to T-Jack.

  82. raymaines says:

    I know we aren’t responsible for injuries, and the Brain Trust isn’t expected to predict the future, but right now I’m glad JS&PC didn’t listen to me in April.

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/26/source-decastro-out-3-5-months/

  83. Dukeshire says:

    Stevo – Book it. I’ll email you to set it up.

    My least favorite Seahawk, in recent history? Brian Russell. All time? Probably Ray Roberts.

  84. Soggybuc says:

    I’ve always Pre-funced at the pyramid brewery, good food and after 3 or 8 the sampler platters your usually ready to go for a game. you might find the need to purchase one overly priced Buttwieser product in the 3rd quarter but if buying overpriced crap beer is your thing feel free.

    Seems to me by rule that a trade for a pick counts as a detractor from the 77 remainder leaving the Hawks one more cut/move before 1 tomorrow.

  85. grizindabox24 says:

    soggy, the TJax deal does leave the Hawks with 1 more move to make

  86. Tjack worked his tail off for us, while injured. Never complained. An incomplete NFL skill set maybe, but a classy and tough guy for sure. Good luck to him.

    Least favorite Seahawks ever? Brian Russell, Charlie Whitehurst, Kelly Jennings, Sean Locklear, and in the end, Shawn Alexander.

  87. Bummed about Deuce and Sutton. I rally liked what I saw from both of them…but there is better quality in front of them…the next round of cuts are going to be brutal!

    With Morrah out, McGrath has a chance to be the 4th TE. I wonder if we will go for 4 TEs this year…

  88. Soggybuc says:

    Sutton is a good back but with Lynch, Turbin, Robinson and Washington that was a tough unit to earn a spot on no matter his play.
    Interesting to see if Tua can stick. unit only has on FB on it but that detracts from other positions if they keep him.

  89. RDPoulsbo says:

    I think Seattle has a lot of conditional 7ths coming their way next week. Guys like Lockette or Lumpkin are guys I think are on the outside looking in that can attract some teams in need of depth.

  90. raymaines says:

    My least favorite SeaHawk of all time is Patrick Kerney. He signed a six-year, $39.5 million contract with the Seahawks that included $19.5 million in guaranteed money and had one good year. Then he married Lisa Gangle. That really hurt.

  91. raymaines – lol! I didn’t know you were in line for Lisa Gangle. Better luck next time!

  92. So, Josh Portis is ok becuz he’s 3rd string but T-Jack isn’t ok at 3rd string eh Bobby? That makes a lot of sense..

    Georgia, Trade Flynn? That’s lucid.

    NWGG, I’m glad you’re hear to speak for everybody about saying good riddance to Morrah and TO. Do you also want to fill in the _____ about what I think of your post?

  93. $4 million vs. league minimum… derrr… yeah, that makes a “lot of sense.” lol

  94. Palerydr says:

    Wondering if, according to the new CBA, if a player is placed on IR they no longer are automatically gone for the year but can come back in season does anybody know if there is a min time they have to sit before becoming eligible to play?

  95. Sure, Now change the topic to money.
    Never mentioned it before, Just your hatred for Tjack.

  96. I agree mocarob. And who cares about the money? Paul Allen isn’t hurting. The cap is set for this year after which Tjack’s cool $4M would’ve been off the books. We’ll still be able to take care of our young guys up for a new contract.

    It probably won’t happen (knock on wood), but hope we never have to rely on Portis.

  97. The Seahawks care about the money thats who = gives them flexibility to do a number of things

    1. Sign players to cover injuries
    2. Extend contracts of guys in the last year of the contract and be able to eat some of the money this year
    3. I think, but am not totally sure, there may be some carry over for next year – not exactly sure how that CBA will be acting on that next year

    Besides – Locker room and effort wise do you really want last years starter on the squad as a #3 guy – which is how they are treating him. If they can get any pick out of him it is good for our future.

  98. grizindabox24 says:

    palerydr, once on the IR the player is done for the year, no change

    Tight ends (6): Zach Miller, Kellen Winslow, Anthony McCoy, Sean McGrath, Cooper Helfet

    That sure does not look like 6

  101. sure it does ;) Sean is one guy and McGrath is the other. maybe he can count as 2 cuts when he goes

  102. Joreb, under the new CBA, the team can rollover the amount they are under the cap this year towards their payroll for next year. So TJ’s $4 mil that we saved will go towards a worthy cause on next year’s team.

  103. BK, show some class for a change about TJack. He is gone, be gracious.

  104. ruminator1 says:

    The TJ bashing is stupid. He did not have what the team brain trust wants. He has some strengths and some considerable weaknesses. But he was a good teammate and showed courage. His stats, given the degree of protection he had and the fact that he played through injury, were not that bad. He had little time to make decisions and he was not a great decision maker. But some of the constant trashing on this site reveals more about the mental deficiencies of the authors than about the football prowess of TJ.

    I wish him well. And I wonder how many former CW supporters were also TJ haters.
